Chest X-ray (CXR) indicates possible fluid in the lower left lobe of the lung. A Chest Computed Tomography (CT) Scan reveals a suspicious lesion in the left lower lobe of the lung with diffuse interstitial fibrotic lesions. Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) reveal lower measurement in breathing from last visit and Pulse Oximetry indicates 91 percent oxygen saturation with 142 heartbeats per minute. In May 2007, the patient underwent a sleep study, was diagnosed with severe sleep eupnea and prescribed a CPAP ventolator to be used during any sleep period.

Over the last 10 dailys, the patient has had at least 25 episodes of dyspnea; all relieved by a bronchodilator inhaler. Most recent episode of dysphnea was yesterday and the prescribed inhaler gave no relief for almost 15 minutes before subsiding to another puff of the inhaler. He went to the emergency room (ER) yesterday for a nebulizer and parioxysm treatment. This patient is a current smoker and indicates a consumption of 2-3 packs of cigarettes per day and has not discussed the need to stop at this point.
